United States Immigration Requirements

This is a summary of what will be required. Those nurses that take the initiative will progress expediently. With the aid of our partners, we will professionally train successful candidates for the NCLEX exam.

You will need to obtain a Registered Nurse Immigrant Visa (“Green Card”) or H-1B visa.

  • U.S. law requires nurses to complete a screening program before they can receive an occupational visa.
  • CGFNS is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to validate the credentials of nine foreign healthcare professions for occupational visas, including registered nurses.
  • Completing CGFNS’ VisaScreen®: Visa Credentials Assessment Service will satisfy the screening program requirement.
  • You will need a “U.S.-based employer” that will serve as the petitioner for your visa. Your VisaScreen® certificate must be included on every visa or green card petition filed on your behalf.  (This will be handled by us)

  • You graduated from an accredited nursing education program in your country of education
  • You are licensed as a Registered Nurse in another country
  • You’ve practiced as a Registered Nurse for at least two years before.
  • Some foreign educated nurses must demonstrate their proficiency with the English language by taking an exam such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). There are exemptions depending on your country of origin.

Canadian Immigration Requirements

If you are an internationally educated nurse (IEN) and you wish to work as a nurse in Canada (except for Quebec and the Territories), you must complete an application with the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS).

Step 1

The NNAS is the National Nursing Assessment Service for Canada, and this is the first step to getting your license is to register with this online service. Note: The application fee is $765 Canadian Dollars. It will take up to 12 months to complete.

Step 2

Pass the NCLEX Exam

Each province in Canada requires you to sit an English exam, or French if you are hoping to work in Quebec. The NCLEX exam is the test used to determine your English language skills. We will provide the online training for you to master this exam.

Step 3

Express Entry

Immigrate as a skilled worker. Qualified Nurses are eligible for full Permanent Residency in under the Federal Skilled Worker Immigration Program on both a Federal and Provincial Nomination basis. Please submit your profile to the Express Entry pool.

The process involves sending notary signed copies of your identification documents (passport, birth certificate) and having relevant people from your college, previous employment and nursing bodies you are registered with complete the forms provided by NNAS. The website does provide video tutorials on how to complete these forms, and you have one year from the date of registering with NNAS to return all documents.

The NNAS will provide an initial assessment of your credentials and match these to comparable Canadian standards. The NNAS have an online handbook you can use to learn more.

On top of the NNAS, each province in Canada requires you to sit an English exam, or French if you are hoping to work in Quebec, if you cannot provide proof of fluency in the English language. The NCLEX exam is the test used to determine your English language skills.

You may apply for a license in the province of your choice to be either:

  • A Registered Nurse (RN)
  • A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
  • Or, a Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN)
